What can you say about the man that many regard as the greatest guitarist who ever lived? Although not strictly blues given his voyages into heavy rock and psychedelia, make no mistake, Jimi played some of the finest and most incendiary blues guitar ever to grace a concert hall or be cut into a slice of vinyl.
“Hendrix for making the blues into raw sex (not to mention the pyromaniac abuse of Stratocasters).” (Thanks, miketrigs93)
“Jimi Hendrix (if he counts).” (Thanks, Gallagher, yes he does)
“Has to be Hendrix. He took the blues and invented fusion, he pioneered the use of major and minor scales in one solo, something that SRV expanded upon. But the genesis of fusion, modern blues, and most hard rock all comes from Hendrix playing his version of the blues.” (Thanks, Shish)
“Jimi Hendrix is the best blues guitar player of all time!” (From Sondre via Facebook, thanks)
